“A UNIQUE RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This restaurant has an excellent menu. The employees are very well trained and make the dining experience a great experience. I have eaten here several times and explored many different things on the menu. I have not had one bad experience. Many times they have waiting lines and may ask if you would like to dine in the bar. This is not a penalty. The bar is excellent as well as the rest of the establishment to enjoy a meal.

“Excellent service and food in a comfortable, rustic restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We had the special of the day--tilapia with lump crab meat on a bed of asparagus. It was drizzled with a lemon butter caper sauce and was very good. Other members in had the filet mignon and chicken with mushrooms and also said their meals were very good. The desserts ranged from warm blueberry cobbler, Italian wedding cake, and a cream brulee. All were excellent! Meridith, our waitress was top notch. Will definitely return!

“A Great Place to eat a Casual Meal with Friends or Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I have eaten at this restaurant dozens of times over the years. The menu selections are varied and well prepared with quite a few imaginative sandwiches, salads and full dinner offerings. The beef for hamburgers is ground in house and hamburgers can be cooked to one's liking. My favorite version is topped with blue cheese. Several salads are outstanding and the daily specials are normally very good. Service is excellent and friendly. The beer and wine selections are commensurate to the very good quality of the restaurant. Weekend brunch, served Saturday and Sunday, is also excellent. The restaurant is large but oftentimes full at lunch and dinner and the usually adequate parking lot overflows to the neighboring strip mall.

“Good food, nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Food was just good. Service was excellent. This is a basic restaurant like Longhorn, but with some out-of-the-ordinary items like elk, venison, and bison. I had the elk burger. It must have been 80% beef 20% elk. It did not have an elk flavor (and yes I've had elk before). The "chocolate creme brulee" was just chocolate mousse with the fired glaze. Probably won't go back, but only because there are too many other good places to eat in Winston.
